Why Taking The Covert Protection Course

The course will prepare candidates to protect a Principal/VIP in less intrusive mode.

Our 21-day Covert Protection Training Course is a specialist close protection training program designed for bodyguards and individuals with some previous knowledge about close protection, seeking a top-tier course to broaden their existing competence/gain new skills in the domain of close protection. 

Nowadays, certain Principals don't want highly visible security detail—foot formations and motorcade; also, they don't want too much interference in their business and personal affairs. Likewise, sometimes, an arm-length method of providing close protection—overt protectioncan not be applied because of operational requirements: environment, risk level, and threat type; this suggests the employment of advanced techniques and clandestine tactics: Covert Protection/Protective Surveillance to protect the Principal in a low-profile and unobtrusive way.

Whatever the reason for using this distinctive protection would be, it requires highly skilled protection specialists. Nemesis Protection Global LLC—as a premium provider of international risk management services—has designed this unique training program to prepare you for this complex undertaking. The course will upgrade your professional performance and take your career to the next level. 

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning; they will ensure that all candidates are properly trained. Our company has adopted a training philosophy: train as you will operate—underpinning our training principles to deliver the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course for all candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will receive practical learning—enabling you the professional know-how.

The course is available to the private and public sectors and civilians. The syllabus can be tailored to your organization's needs and delivered for your personnel at your location worldwide; the pricing of the bespoke training program depends on curriculum, duration, and location.

Is there a guaranteed job placement after the course?

In short, no, there is not; it is not ethical nor professional to guarantee you a job after the course because of many reasons; for example, whether a candidate is fit for a position or not, it's impossible to know in advance.

We can only promise a high level of training and ongoing post-course support.
